The fallout from Liverpool's first Merseyside derby defeat for 11 years continues with Jurgen Klopp preparing to meet the media on Friday.
The Reds manager will address questions from the club's AXA Training Centre as he aims to shake off a worrying run of form that has almost derailed the season.
Liverpool face Sheffield United on Sunday at Bramall Lane looking to get back to winning ways and their top-four hopes a big shot in the arm.
Here, the ECHO looks at the big issues likely to be discussed when Klopp speaks ahead of the game.
How Alisson is feeling
The big issue at the forefront of Liverpool supporters' minds is just how their goalkeeper, Alisson Becker, is faring.
The Brazil international was given the sad news of his father's passing on Wednesday.
Jose Becker's body was found at around midnight in the city of Bage after a swimming incident.
Tributes have poured in from across Brazilian football since the news was made public as Liverpool rallied around their goalkeeper.
The club put out a tweet on Thursday afternoon to publicly show their support to Alisson following the tragic news.
Liverpool have understandably asked the media to respect the privacy of the Becker family at this time, but Klopp will no doubt at least be asked about the state of mind of his No.1 ahead of the game.
It is not yet clear if Alisson will miss the game against the Blades but there would be few objections if he opted to.
Jordan Henderson latest
As ever, Klopp will be asked about the latest on the injury front and that concerns his captain, Jordan Henderson.
The Reds skipper, who was playing as an emergency centre-back, was withdrawn midway through the first half of Saturday's defeat to Everton.
Liverpool were awaiting the results of a scan earlier this week and Klopp is likely to be armed with more information when he meets the media.
“It’s the groin/adductor region and nobody in the medical department was positive about it," Klopp said after the game.
“It doesn’t look good, but we have to wait, of course, for the scan tomorrow, hopefully.”
One report this week claimed it would be a 12-week absence for the captain, but that likely to be highly speculative.
Klopp will have a more informed prognosis.
As Liverpool fans continue to fret over the long-term prospects of Henderson, they will also keep their fingers crossed for Fabinho too.
The midfielder - who has been converted into a makeshift centre-back this season - has missed the last three games through injury.
He has been back in the gym at the AXA Centre but has yet to be pictured working outside on the pitches.
With Klopp known to prefer his players to take part in two full sessions before they are included in part of the pre-match thinking, time is running out for Fabinho to be involved.
Klopp will provide an update on the Brazilian ahead of Sunday but the Reds fans may have to brace themselves for more time off for the former Monaco star.
Van Dijk progress goes on
Virgil van Dijk continues to make great strides in his own progress.
The Dutchman returned from a two-month stint in Dubai earlier this month and has been back training in Kirkby since.
Some gym work alongside Joe Gomez left the pair all smiles last week before Van Dijk was pictured out on the pitches working to his own tailored session.
It should be noted that Van Dijk's work is still viewed as merely rehabilitation and there is no suggestion a return to the side is imminent.
Liverpool are still refusing to place a time frame on the £75m man's absence, but the signs are hopeful and positive at least.
Jota back in the fold
And to round off what could be an injury-themed press conference, expect Klopp to be more upbeat about the return of Diogo Jota.
The Portugal international was finally able to resume full training on Wednesday as he took part in a team session.
Jota hasn't played for close to three months and Liverpool's form has fallen off a cliff since he limped away from the draw with Midtjylland on December 9.
It is unlikely he will be in line to start against Chris Wilder's side but Klopp may give supporters a rare spot of good news on the injury front on Friday.
